DISNEY CRUISE LINE: Disney’s new Fantasy

Disney Cruise Line has announced that the 122,000gt Disney Fantasy, the second of its two new ships being built by Germany’s Meyer Werft shipyard, will enter service on 7 April 2012. She will sail on alternating weekly itineraries from Port Canaveral, calling at St Maarten, St Thomas and Castaway Cay in the Eastern Caribbean and to Grand Cayman, Costa Maya, Cozumel and Castaway Cay in the Western Caribbean. Disney Magic (1998/83,338gt) will operate the same schedule from January 2012 until Fantasy arrives.

No plans have yet been identified for Disney Magic (pictured below at Valletta) after April 2012, and she may return to Europe as in 2010 and 2011. Disney’s other two ships repeat the 2011 schedules in 2012. Disney Dream, delivered on 9 December 2010, operates from Port Canaveral to the Bahamas, while Disney Wonder (1999/83,308gt) goes to the Mexican Riviera.
